Kathmandu - Pokhara - Chitwan Tour
  • img466
Kathmandu (1350m) is the normal gateway to all parts of the Nepal Himalaya. Trekkers should spend a few days exploring the magical parts of the city. It’s a friendly, welcoming place, despite some obvious distractions. The longer you stay the more of a home away from home it becomes. There is a wide range of excellent hotels and guesthouses to suit all taste and an astonishing array of eateries and restaurants. Despite the obvious modernization, the city and the whole valley still have some enchanting places to discover.
The Kathmandu Valley probably has the greatest concentration of temples, shrines, monasteries, and idols of anywhere across the globe. Kathmandu is the trading crossroads of the Himalaya between India and China, through Tibet. The city is a great melting pot of immigrating peoples. The religious mix of Hinduism, Buddhism, Tantra, Vajrayana, Tibetan Buddhism, Bon and Shamanism are intoxicating.
No visit to Nepal would be complete without a thorough exploration of the Durbar (palace) squares of the three great cities, Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur. Patan, a city of artisans and quaint, quiet lanes, the Durbar Square here is perhaps the most exotic of the three such squares of the valley. Similarly, Bhaktapur, 11km east of Kathmandu, is the least modernized city of the valley. Its Durbar Square is intriguing, with some impressive restoration after a massive earthquake destroyed the once vast complex.

Pokhara, located about 200 km west of Kathmandu, is a beautiful valley of lakes. The valley is home to beautiful lakes- Phewa, Begnas, Rupa, Dipang, Maidi and Khoste among others. But the Phewa Lake is the major attraction in Pokhara. Other attractions in Pokhara are Davi’s Fall, Mahendra Cave, Barahi temple, Bindhabasini temple, Chamero Cave, Gupteshwor Cave, World Peace Stupa and Seti George among others. Sarangkot is a popular hill station in Pokhara and offers magnificent views of Mountain peaks in Annapurna Range.  Sarangkot is also the spectacular vantage point of sunrise and sunset and take-off point for paragliding trips. Pokhara is also home to International Mountain Museum, the only mountain museum in the country.

The most popular and easily accessed district, Chitwan is located south of the Kathmandu-Pokhara road not far from the Narayanghat. Lying in Chitwan district along the Indian border, Chitwan National Park is the most renowned destination in Nepal in order to experience the various wildlife resources. Chitwan National Park is home to rare One-horned rhino, Royal Bengal Tiger, Ghariyal Crocodile and different other species of flora and fauna. We indulge in various activities like birds watching, jungle walks, Elephant bathing, and jungle safari on Elephant back or by jeep, it’s your choice.
